AIDAA Educational Series and Academy, Aircraft Impact Dynamics<img alt="" src="/PublishingImages/Aircraft%20Impact%20Dynamics.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />https://twing.cira.it/news/AIDAA Educational Series and Academy, Aircraft Impact DynamicsAIDAA Educational Series and Academy, Aircraft Impact Dynamics5/19/2021 10:00:00 PM<p style="text-align:justify;">​​The webinar provides an overview of recent developments in a specialized area research on aircraft impact dynamics. The original contributions from the authors define the state of the art in the chosen thematic area by focusing attention on cases of industrial interests addressed to development programmes. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">They give an overview of the definition of the field of applicability and of how the research has produced innovations and improvements. Improvements concern certainly materials and structures, but they also include the ways of energy absorbing involving a greater part of the structure during the impact. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">This short webinar is addressed to PH’D students, experienced researchers, regulatory agencies and industry specialists. It discusses the latest aerospace crashworthiness regulations, certification by analysis methods for aircraft, bird strike, metallic & composite structures, impact dynamics up to computational and experimental technique. Finally, two cases study about the aircraft seat structures and an aircraft accident ​will be discussed.</p><p><strong>Target audience</strong>: doctoral students, non-academic professionals, and undergraduate students.</p><p><strong>Dates and timetable</strong>:</p><p><strong>DAY 1 – Tuesday 25 May 2021 from 4.30 pm to 6.30 pm</strong></p><p>4.30 – 4.45 Welcome: Francesco Marulo</p><p>4.45 – 5.15 Wim Doeland: “Crashworthiness of CS-25 Large Aeroplanes – Review of structural airworthiness requirements in relation to some recent accidents”</p><p>5.15 – 5.45 Michiel Schuurman: “Re-engineering the Accident - Learning from accident scene to a computer screen”</p><p>5.45 – 6.15 Gerardo Olivares: “Integrated Safety for Urban Air Crashworthiness”</p><p>6.15 - 6.30 Round Table/Question Time<br></p><p><strong>DAY 2 - Friday 28 May 2021 from 10:30 to 13:00</strong></p><p>10.30 – 10.45 Welcome: Michele Guida</p><p>10.45 – 11.15 Chiara Bisagni: “Composite Structures of Aircraft Fuselage in Crash and Ditching Conditions”</p><p>11.15 – 11.45 F.

Annual Meeting of the Clean Sky 2 Fast Rotorcraft-Airframe ITDs. NexGenCTR tiltorotr program<img alt="" src="/PublishingImages/Annual%20Review%20Meeting%202021.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />https://twing.cira.it/news/Annual Meeting of the Clean Sky 2 Fast Rotorcraft-Airframe ITDs. NexGenCTR tiltorotr programAnnual Meeting of the Clean Sky 2 Fast Rotorcraft-Airframe ITDs. NexGenCTR tiltorotr program5/5/2021 4:00:00 PM<p style="text-align:justify;">​​For the second time, due to the pandemic situation, the Next Generation of Civil Tilt Rotor annual review meeting will be held remotely. T-WING consortium is part of the meeting along with Leonardo Helicopters, Fokker-GKN, CSJU representatives and the panel of experts.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><span style="text-align:justify;">On 4th-5th May, t</span>he main discussions relate to 2020 NGCTR programme activites and achievements. The 2020 has been a very challenging year for NGCTR community in particular for T-WING and its partners (CIRA, IBK, MA Group, OMI, SSM, and Università degli Studi di Napoli) given the completion of the Critical Design review of the wing and moveable surfaces, the execution of the wind tunnel test campaign in steady and unstedy condition in IWT and the award of another scope extension which includes the development of the nacelle primary structure with the use of innovative manufacturing processes. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">During 2021 the design and manufacturing of the tools will continue as well as the trial manufacturing of critical composite parts. The wing composite and metal parts, jigs for wing and moveable surfaces assembly and the nacelle primary structure manufacturing will be launched.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">On the other hand, the clearance for first flight will be approached as well as the finalization of the scalability studies (limited to the wing and moveable surfaces) for the future larger tilt rotor.</p><p><br><br></p>On 4th-5th May 2021 will be held the Annual Review Meeting. The main discussions relate to 2020 NGCTR programme activites and achievements.
